McKINNEY, Texas (Nov. 10, 2016) – The Apex Centre, McKinney’s new aquatics and fitness center, will host a resident-only presale event Nov. 19–23 at The Courts at Gabe Nesbitt Community Park, 3253 Alma Rd. On Nov. 25, membership sales open to non-residents.

The City of McKinney and McKinney Community Development Corporation (MCDC) teamed up to build the $36 million aquatics and fitness center in Gabe Nesbitt Community Park. The 80,000-square-foot facility includes a 25-yard-by-25-meter pool for competitive and lap swimming, a leisure pool and an outdoor leisure and recreation pool. Additionally, the Apex Centre includes a fitness facility, weight training equipment, basketball courts, an elevated track, babysitting facilities and multipurpose rooms. The facility will open in February 2017.

The facility will operate on a 100 percent cost recovery basis and will offer annual, monthly and daily memberships for youth, seniors, adults and families, as well as resident and non-resident rates.

Funding for the Apex Centre includes more than $34.5 million from MCDC, generated from a half cent “quality of life” sales tax, and nearly $1.5 million from the City of McKinney.
